Development Corner

We now call them Sustainers, those whose persistent, consistent support through automated monthly contributions create a steady, predictable enhancement to the monthly budget of New Danville, enabling us to continue to improve the range of programs and services that we offer to our Wranglers.

In June 2021, New Danville implemented a new, expansive approach to engaging and celebrating our donors. For the next few Development Corner columns, I will highlight some of the new donor categories. If you do not want to wait for several months’ worth of Wrangler Gazette’s, I would be happy to send you a copy of the new brochure that describes the many ways we will be distinguishing and acknowledging donors, ranging from Sustainers to The Windmill Society for planned giving donors, and everything in between.

Sustainers will be recognized at three levels:

  • $20.05 and more per month (a tip of the hat to when New Danville was incorporated, 2005) provides $240.60 per year
  • $83.33 and more per month (recognizing the former Thousand Dollar Club from years ago) provides $1000 per year
  • $200.50 and more per month (again, a tip of the hat to our founding year) provides $2406.00 per year

All Sustainers will receive Jazzy Junque “cash” that they can use at our upscale home décor resale shop in Outlets at Conroe shopping center.

Beginning Spring 2022, we will host an annual donor appreciation event at which donors at all the recognized levels will be invited so we can show our appreciation while also creating a sense of community among those who help make the New Danville community what it is.

You can begin participating as a Sustainer by clicking this link, choosing a gift value, and selecting “monthly” in the frequency section of the form.  Please feel free to contact me if you would like more information.  Dion McInnis:  Dion.McInnis@NewDanville.org; 936-253-5757.

Introducing Dion McInnis

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

New Danville has 2020 vision, that is, a clear view of the future thanks to the challenges and successes of 2020. One of the clear needs to be met was that of hiring New Danville’s first-ever development director. Dion McInnis joined the team on March 17.

“We did well in 2020, despite the challenges the year brought us,” New Danville’s President and CEO Eva Aguirre said. “From it, we saw the need to become even stronger in the areas of branding, marketing and fundraising. I am very pleased that our board approved the hiring of our first-ever development director. We are fortunate to have found someone with extensive experience, an empathetic heart and storytelling prowess to create a robust fundraising and marketing office for us.”

Dion McInnis brought with him decades of experience in the areas of fundraising, community and alumni relations, publications and public relations, communications and more for universities, a museum and a national health organization. Also a lifelong writer and photographer, he said, “I have always strived to celebrate and empower others in my vocational and avocational pursuits. New Danville’s motto of ‘Live, Learn, Work, Grow’ captured my attention immediately. I look forward to celebrating everyone involved with New Danville’s programs in myriad ways and to garner increased support to help provide programs and services to our Wranglers.”

Eva highlighted the many successful fundraising events New Danville has had over the years and the focused work of the dedicated board. “We have had much success and look forward to the future with the seeds that our team, volunteers and board leaders have planted for us over the 16 years New Danville has been in service.
